There are no steps anymore. What happened? Just header, table of contents and comments. Where is the content?
nepheron (author)  Morana2 years ago
I am very sorry, but the content of the instructable is gone. It's a long story, entirely my fault. It was not able to be restored by instructables staff. I might eventually make a replacement.
Please do!
This is one of my favourite ideas!

Sounds like a great project. Why am I getting nothing but blanks for pages? Everything but the actual photo's. Anyone have an answer or cure? Have I been banned? My payments are auto deduct, what gives?
i getting the same, starts you wondering about the intrisical values of the website.

Couldn't you use pearlite as the other 50% of the mix in the chamber to help evarorate the alcohol. I use that method for all my homemade burners and it lights up first time, no preheat required :)

I tried to make this, but didnt use copper end caps, just crimped the ends down... I failed horribly and almost burned my house down. I filled the log with acetone and lit it, but it turned out the crimped ends didnt seal, so acetone leaked everywhere, then the cap I used to fill it spilled, catching the plywood workbench I was working on on fire. So at this point I was scared out of my mind, so I took a spare rag, hoping I could snuff out the fire, but the rag soaked up the fuel and caught fire. I now had a flaming workbench, log and rag that I was swinging around, which incidentally caught the bottle of acetone on fire. I managed to blow everything out before it caught on the surrounding flammable objects, but it was rather close.
let that be a lesson to everyone... DON'T crimp the ends down!!!!
Even better, right next to my bench was a entire cabinet of chemicals, flammable ones.

i wouldn't worry about explosions, if the pressure got to hot then the cork would blow out (much like a spud gun) and leak flaming alcohol on the surface below =)

is there anything i could add to the fuel to change the burn color?
nepheron (author)  rokkit6 years ago
I've thought about it before. Because it burns via alcohol evaporation you would need a colorant that evaporates with it. Probably non-existent v('_')v

if you search the types of salts used in fireworks you probablly could find one that, if mixed with the alcohol, would burn similarly.

 A bit of table salt should make the flame more visible, but other colors may be more difficult to achieve.
Boric acid for a deep green color. You can also use borax, which gives a more yellowish green.
Food Coloring of some sort in the Alchohol?

Can I use lighter fluid?
nepheron (author)  Munchys4 years ago
No, lighter fluid will probably be a very bad thing :)
It could explode!

What is the mat made of? Where can I find one? Thanks, great project, by the way.
nepheron (author)  boehmap5 years ago
The mat is a rubber mouse pad with the decal removed. Its special because it appears to be made of aerated vulcanized rubber or silicone. It will not melt and will only burn at high temperatures (I have burned it before. It does not release smoke, the foam structure just collapses)
